Microsoft to bring Cortana, Bing and other Microsoft experiences to Android and iOS
Microsoft has announced that they are rebranding their Bing suite of apps to MSN. This was done along with the announcement about the new revamped MSN.com preview portal. The company, has rebuilt their MSN Platform from the ground up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world that Microsoft CEO wrote about in his recent long letter to the company. The new MSN brings together the world’s best media sources along with data and services to enable users to do more in News, Sports, Money, Travel, Food & Drink, Health & Fitness, and more.
Microsoft aims to make it simple to personalize what you want to see regardless of which device you use. So that why they will soon release a suite of MSN apps across iOS and Android to complement our corresponding Windows and Windows Phone apps. MSN users across all platforms will be connected across MSN, Cortana, Bing and other Microsoft experiences. Whether it is your watchlist of stocks in MSN Money, your favorite sports teams in MSN Sports, or your recipe collections in MSN Food & Drink, those things will always be with you at your PC at work, on your iPad in the living room, or on your Android phone when you are on the go.
According to the Microsoft Blog, at the top of the MSN homepage, users have quick access to what we call the Services Stripe. This allows easy access to personal services to stay on top of what’s happening in your life. With a quick hover, you can easily check your email, browse your OneDrive, or even access your OneNote notebooks. We’ve also integrated popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, Office 365 and Skype.
